Red and green log cabin quilt - finished!
I started this quilt in November when I realised I had a lot of red and green precut 2.5" strips in my strip box. And I guess I was in the mood for Christmas??
I love making log cabin blocks and when the strips are this large the 12" blocks come together really quickly. But I had made a mistake and only realised half way through. I did some unpicking and very quickly this top (58" x 70")was finished.
Then it was just a matter of waiting until I had the chance to pin this single bed size top. I had the perfect green in my stash for a backing. So in January when it got pinned it sat there looking at me until I set to one weekend and stipple quilted it.
Then it sat and sat until I finally went looking for scrap red strips sufficient to make binding from. So the whole quilt came out of my stash, which I am really pleased about!
Happy quilting Sue.
